Our film explores the lives of three adoptive sons after their father's passing. It's soft, poignant and ultimately feel good.

Synopsis

My Last Day with Dad is a story of reconciliation, brotherhood and ultimately: family. Join us on our journey in delving into the lives of three adopted brothers as they hash out and try to rebuild their relationship just after their father’s funeral.

Why are we making this project?

The three of us all came together and recognised one thing we shared in common, we love our families! But sometimes family life can be challenging and there is no one uniform dynamic, families come in all shapes and sizes, they fall out, split apart and hopefully reconcile. So we wanted to tell a story that's actually quite small and warm about three brothers who really miss their dad.  

Where will your donation's go? 

Your donations will in large go to supporting our incredible team of creatives who have joined us for this project! Both in Production and Post Production we've got a stellar crew who we are so proud to have on board. Thanks to the generous support in kind from Central's media department who are providing us with kit, the kendal-Sadiq family who have provided us with our location free of charge and are also supporting the catering and accommodating our team for the shoot, this means our budget can go towards the team, transporting equipment from London and creating the final touches to the set! 

Our core team are working entirely for free! It's our passion and desire to see this project through which drives us and we're proud to be raising funds to support our crew in production and post!
